This week was a great week in Internet writing. Here’s what I read:
1. This new Joan Didion piece is just her notes from reporting on the Patty Hearst trial in the 1970s, and it’s still incredible writing. I am in awe.
2. America and Allrecipes.
3. The eternal magic of Beirut.
4. The stories of the first group of people to sign up for Remote Year, a program that promised both work and travel.
5. Jane Jacobs and her contributions to urban planning, in light of her 100th birthday.
And a bonus: Texts from Samuel Coleridge.
Have a wonderful weekend.
